By far and away this brooch is one of the finest pieces of antique Paste jewellery we have ever seen anywhere, Let alone here at Lillicoco! So we're thrilled to have this exceptional brooch in our collection!
Made in the 1800's, this antique crescent moon brooch exemplifies why we are so fascinated with antique jewellery today. It's charming, it's romantic, and it has the indescribable charm of something you just know is precious.
Set against a deep and dark aged patina on the Silver the old cut Pastes really catch your eye with a fierce sparkle, even in low level lighting, making this brooch the perfect accessory to take you from day to night in style.
You can wear it on a coat, a scarf, or as a necklace and watch all eyes gravitate towards you!
The Pastes have each been hand-cut and hand-finished individually, so when you peer at them long enough you'll realize they are all unique. We love the way they've been cut chunky, with high tables and steep edges to mimic beautiful old cut Diamonds too!
This beautiful Victorian Silver Paste brooch would make a gorgeous and timeless gift for any occasion.
